The most hilarious thing about this "troll the protesters by bying monocles" movement is that the more popular the NEX store appears to be to CCP, the more dev-resources they are gonna allocate to it - at the expense of something else obviously.


at the expense of the protesters providing us amusent over their rage.


Im not raging dude... Its just dam funny that you Bling bling people think we are raging. Its kinda the oposite you know If you bought a monocle you just show how dumb and NOOB you are.. That we got you to spend all that ISK = real money makes the hole mather even funnier YARRRR!!

Akita, join the monocle club. Would look great on you.

I could accidentally sneeze, misplace a decimal and lose more ISK than the monocle costs, so I surely have no budget qualms when thinking on whether to buy one or not.
But I am not wearing that horrible contraption, it looks ugly as hell.
So why bother buying it ?

P.S. If I would want to show off my wallet, I would simply do THIS.

You are doing what I cannot bring myself to do, spend real money on nothing.

Spend ISK on nothing, you mean ?
How many of them do you think they actually used RL cash to buy PLEX to smash into AUR to buy them ?
I'd be surprised if even ONE of them did that.
But you never know.



It doesn't matter if they bought the PLEX, somebody bought the PLEX & as soon as you turn it into AUR you give it to CCP for nothing. Free Money.

Yes, you're right.
But still, whoever bought it for ISK (or ISK->PLEX->AUR->NEX) didn't spend any real money on it.

I have 226 bil ISK liquid, and again as much in assets, loans and investments.
Does that mean I have over 20,000 USD available to do as I wish with ?
No, it does not.
Unless I wish to spend it in EVE.
I can't spend it anywhere else.

The fact that somebody somewhere paid real money to actually enable me to buy the damned monocle if I wanted to makes zero difference on the fact that I wouldn't spend any real money myself to buy it.
So why thank the monocle wearers, why not thank the PLEX sellers instead ?
THEY are the ones who spent the real-life cash.

Akita, sounds like you're feeling insecure about not having a Monocle, this means CCP's doctrine of the greed is good is working & many many players are going to be tempted to give CCP free money just because they can. It is afteral the only MT item you can see on your portrait.
I'm so glad I'm leaving EvE because I find this sort of cynical abuse of power by CCP for their own ends disgusting.

Just remember CCP you may pull some gullible players into this rubbish for your own ends but many of us will never ever give you another cent.

Its simple really I guess people buy plex to get ships and mods right? you with me Monocle? If Cash store/aru offers better Items and gear and you convert your ISK to get it... The dude who payes for Plex will convert it to aru, because that will give him the the edge. You with me Monocle? You will also be spending your ISK to convert it to aru... A very pricy conversion for you... and If this was the end of it okey fine you have loads of ISK you can afford it right? But the Plex will stop coming to the market because everyone an there mother will convert to aru because they get better items that way. So no more Plex for sub for you and a ****load of ISK that needed to be converted to ARU... Soon you will be forced to pay for the game Subcription with IRL money. No plex on market.. Or very few highly priced plex.. and lots of isk that needs conversion so you can become competetive.. ITs gona just snowball from there... Untill CCPs master plan has run its full effect..


Except that you can't buy ships or mods on the nex store, not even golden ammo. Only vanity items. If that every changes, then you may have something to worry about, but there is absolutely zero reason to suspect that will happen.

I don't mind the idea of being the only EVE player left who hasn't bought the monocle. Now an eyepatch... that would take some willpower.

Please re-read, I don't buy a PLEX with money - I do with ISK, which is clearly stated above, and have for over 2 years.

Peasant? Sorry, no... just not a fool with my money, but again I appreciate you doing the paying to CCP to keep them going. I subbed my first year, became ISK independent on all accounts and ISK/PLEX them since, CCP has not profited by my time/access for 24 months... so it is good you all take up the slack for we who do not "need to pay to play" - CCP has to pay bills somehow and I appreciate you taking your wages and putting them up so that I can continue to play for free, you pay to win, I play for free, but then the elites never pay, they get workers to pay for them. SO thanks!

*this message was endorsed by the wage-slaves for monocles appreciation foundation of non-paying players* Laughing


FYI... if you fat faced babies didn't make such a huge deal out of monocles, very few would have bought them, but now you've made it the proverbial "middle finger" of everyone who is sick of the crying and the boo hooing. You should be thanking yourself for all the monocle sales. Good job stupid.

And for those who have unsubbed, stop squatting when you pee and bio mass all your accounts. It's the only way to stop the madness

Now, do these monocles come in different sizes?

I can have up to 20,000 USD's worth in "pixel money" to convert to PLEX then AUR and give to CCP.
They just have to offer me something I would want to buy.
So far, they haven't offered anything besides the subscription.
And even that one is not exactly enticing on multiple accounts.

...

Hey, I know !
How about they let me pay TWO OR MORE PLEX per month per account (no upper limit to PLEX per month, maximum rate set on account creation) ?
Basically, getting actually "cloned".
The benefit this new account would have would be that you get to fly TWO OR MORE ships AT THE SAME TIME, IN FORMATION, AT THE SPEED OF THE SLOWEST ONE - one for each PLEX selected on account creation, either with a RTS-like interface instead of the current one, or with "docked windows" for each ship. All ships need to be in the same system - they all need to jump out at the same time. If one gets podded, it doesn't "respwan" in a station until the rest get killed.
No characters can be transfered TO this account (except from accounts with equal or higher rates). You can transfer characters out "fully" or partially. Partial transfers lower your PLEX/month rate, and are transfered "naked" (no assets instead of implants in head)
When you learn a skill, you need more than one book (you need as many identical books as number of PLEX - if you selected 4 ships at once, so 4 PLEX per month, you need 4 copies of the same skillbook to actually train it).
Each implant slot has multiple headings, for each "copy". You learn skills at the rate of the SLOWEST appliable plugged-in implant combination (so if you go with "*4" and have three +5 but one +4 MEM implant, you train as if you had a +4 MEM implant only).

BEHOLD, MY HOLY WRATH OF A HUNDRED KESTRELS !!!

P.S. The above, after "...", was sarcasm. Just in case.

Akita, you are sooo not above the fray.

Ah well, at least it proves you're human and not some sentient Japanese supercomputer.Smile
